On the 14th, we had our annual Children's Pageant, which included Christmas traditions from around the world. For the Children's message, we watched another conversation on participating in the Advent Conspiracy - this time encouraging us to preserve our Advent preparations through worship.
Last Sunday, we watched a movie trailer as our continuing series of Children's Messages on reclaiming the meaning of Christmas from the consumerism that has become so normal in our society. This clip shows the shopping "mad dashes" that have claimed more lives again this year. Someone in Pittsburg heard that an employee at Walmart was punched by a shopper when they didn't have what they wanted. This isn't what Christmas is supposed to be... is it?
This is an Open Source project for all who seek to make the world a better place.
We live in an evolutionary world that continues to evolve and change. Humanity is the universe becoming conscious of itself. For good or ill, we are the co-creators of our world. If the world's philosophical and religious traditions are the inheritance of all humanity, what are those sayings, quotations, readings, etc. from every discipline that will help humanity build a new way of living in peace with the planet and one another?
